Rick Santorum Wants To Take Back JFK Comments

Yesterday, on radio host Laura Ingraham's syndicated show, Rick Santorum had to first weather Ingraham's criticism of his remarks:
I mean, as a Catholic, he's a revered president of the United States, assassinated, I probably wouldn't have gone down that road with JFK and I was going to throw up. We generally don't want to hear presidential candidates talking about throwing up at all in any context.
Which resulted, perhaps not-so-shockingly, in Santorum trying to distance himself from his original comments:
The Republican presidential candidate said he regrets saying a 1960 John F. Kennedy speech on religion made him want to throw up.

"I wish that I had that particular line back," the former Pennsylvania Senator — who's also a Catholic — admitted on the Laura Ingraham radio show on Tuesday.
Ooops. Duh.
